MochiKit integration into Zope 3

Project description


gocept.mochikit integrates MochiKit ( into Zope 2 and
Zope 3. Send questions to Christian Zagrodnick <>.

Usage (Zope 3)

To use gocept.mochikit you need to add the following to your package
configuration (ZCML)::

<include package="gocept.mochikit" />

This provides several resource libraries using the `zc.resourcelibrary`
package. In a page template you use::

<tal:replace replace="resource_library:mochikit" />

This will automatically load the main MochiKit file in its packed variant.
There are several additional MochiKit files which are not included in the
libarary above:

* mochikit.DragAndDrop
* mochikit.Controls
* mochikit.MockDOM
* mochikit.Selector
* mochikit.Test

You use those like this::

<tal:replace replace="resource_library:mochikit.DragAndDrop" />

Unpacked Variant

If you need to debug it's often easier to use the plain and unpacked MochiKit
variant. To use you load the package like this::

<include package="gocept.mochikit" file="unpacked" />

Usage (Zope 2)

To use gocept.mochikit in Zope 2 you need to add the following to your package
configuration (ZCML)::

<include package="gocept.mochikit" file="zope2.zcml" />

This provides the packed version of MochiKit, so in your HTML template you
need to include the following::
